We just discovered some news; we hear that Affion Crockett, Brian White, Billy Dee Williams, Hayes MacArthur, Josh Peck, Natalie Zea and Amin Joseph are all starring in a brand new comedy pilot titled The Rebels (aka The Outlaws).
The new pilot is written by Jeremy Garelick (The Break-Up) and Jon Weinbach (30 for 30), and produced by Matt Alvarez of Cube Vision Productions (Ice Cube) and Michael Strahan.
The synopsis reads like this: Following the death of The Rebels team owner, the flailing organization is put into the hands of his widow played by Natalie Zea. Amin Joseph plays a cantankerous veteran running back on the win-less team, joined by wide receiver Affion Crockett and strong safety Brian White. Billy Dee Williams also stars as Coach Paysinger
No word yet on when the series will debut.
Stay tuned as the story is developing!
